About the OP accutron, I copied this from the WWU post... The pics there also look much better to me. But there is precious little info on this project. I like it now that I've seen a little more. That quartz coil still bugs me.

@mjollnir "the electrostatic energy is created by twin turbines that rotate as a result of human motion at incredible speeds between two electrodes affixed to the movement. The energy, stored in an accumulator, powers two motors; a world's first electrostatic motor fueling the fluid second hand and a step motor powering the hour and minute hands."
Well I signed up, got to give it to the OP this watch is proving to be an interesting piece of engineering. The turbine technology has poked my interest levels
SM2, I am gonna guess that mrjones runs it to spy on us.
It is rather sketchy being so basic.
I haven't spent too much time researching this but I am very close to calling it out an early Aprils fool maybe?

Hmm... that is odd.
Perhaps a PR company trying to test the water for Bulova on interest? Or even the journalist who first broke the 'news' trying to build a fan base?
After looking at some of the html code, it's definitely a shopify page that is poorly designed. Big companies farm out their marketing, so I wouldn't put it past a marketing team to have a page like this. If they wanted their Accutron division to have their own place in the world, a new site with the ability to directly buy the watch would be nice. The code doesn't reveal much of anything about the site or any hidden features/pages unfortunately.
